Our daughter just finished kindergarten at Lewis. We selected this school for the dual language program and have been thrilled with our choice. She has learned so much Spanish in just one school year...we are just amazed. She is also making great progress in all her subjects. The staff is all fantastic and seem to really care about the kids. They all go the extra mile and are always friendly and positive. The uniform is an added bonus for us as there no arguments about what to wear to school and no concerns about "fitting in" because of clothing. The parent involvement in the PTA could be better, but those who participate work hard for the kids and the school. The school holds great events for families and is very welcoming.
I am a kindergarten teacher in William C. Lewis Dual Language Elementary school. We are a public school located in the Cool Springs area of Wilmington. Our staff is highly-qualified and most of the staff is bilingual. Our students attend a half day program in Spanish, where they learn Spanish Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science in Spanish. In English, I instruct English Language Arts, Writing, and Social Studies. The Spanish and English teachers reinforce the content that is taught in the other language. We follow the Common Core and have many wonderful resources for our students. In addition, we offer a Positive Behavior System throughout the school which celebrates good behavior. It has been a pleasure working with the staff, administrators, and students at Lewis.
I think that this is a truly great school. I have been totally satisfied since my son started there for Kindergarten. He is now in the first grade. He enjoys going to Lewis, and I enjoy sending him there. THe teachers and the new acting principal is a great assest to the school. Please keep up the good wor.
